Tree 6 – Penrith Men’s Walk and Talk

The stereotype that men should never express their emotions and should never talk about their struggles is being crushed by a great local initiative – Penrith Men’s Walk and Talk.
Penrith Men’s Walk and Talk is a free event for men only (sorry ladies). Every Thursday Penrith’s Men Walk and Talk encourage men to join them on a walk and talk around the Nepean river allowing them to catch up with other men and get some exercise.
The weekly walk begins and ends at the Nepean River Coffee Club and follows the bridge to bridge Great River Walk which is about 6.4km long and takes around an hour and ten minutes. But there are no strict rules if you’re unable to walk the entire way or can’t stay the whole time.
